Using the wall adaptor to power up camera

It is possible to power up the camera by using an external wall adaptor. As long as the cable has USB-C on one side and the wall adaptor can support at least 5W.

In this case the USB-C cable cannot be used to transfer data over to the PC. The user will have to communicate through an IX ethernet cable as the one shown below: - https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/harting/33480147826020/14556483

Setup as follows:

  • Connect wall adaptor with USB-C cable to power outlet and camera
  • Connect IX ethernet cable to router and camera

  • Ensure your laptop is connected to router (WIFI or Ethernet is okay)
    • Please note there will be frame drops by using WIFI or Ethernet in comparison to USB-C
  • Find IP address of camera (Multiple options)
    • Connect to router and find IP address of camera (192.168.0.1 can usually take you to your router menu)
    • Connect to NXP via micro-USB cable and get ip address
      • For instructions please check Connecting to adtf-3175x
      • Once logged in run 'ip addr' command and find IP address as shown in red below. In this case the IP address is 192.168.0.101

  • To run the GUI change 'camera_ip' parameter to IP found above in the tof-tools.config file in “TOF_Evaluation_ADTF3175D-RelX.X.X\bin” folder (Open with notepad)
